Located on the Huntersville Campus, Hart Cottage is a three (3) bed home designed to meet the needs of adults with brain injuries who are independent with all activities of daily living (ADLs), yet need mild to moderate assistance and supervision to accomplish tasks and remain safe.

Hart Cottage provides residents with 24-hour, 7-days per week supervision and identified supports around personal care (grooming, housekeeping, meal planning and preparation, etc.). The house is staffed based on 12 hour awake staff shifts. The day shift occurring between 6am-7pm, and the night shift occurring between 6pm-7am. We maintain a minimum of 3:1 resident to staff ratio.

Our friendly staff is also dedicated to helping residents maximize their potential and quality of life by providing opportunities for residents to improve their social, functional, and communication skills.  Our residents in collaboration with our staff will plan social and recreational activities in-house and in the community.  Our staff will also facilitate management of resident’s schedules, appointments, and medication administration.


Each resident will have a private room. Every room is designed to have at least two large windows with a grand peaceful view of our 36-acre farm. Residents will share a bathroom with a maximum of one other resident and be given space for storage of their personal toiletries. Nutritious meal options are purposely crafted to meet the specific dietary and health needs of each resident.  In addition, each resident’s room and board will include utilities, housekeeping services, limited transportation, and access to our Day Program.
